Promapp Solutions – an industry leading provider of cloud-based process management software – is changing the way HR teams manage processes across multiple sites or to meet the needs of different teams, with the launch of its new Process Variant Management (PVM) software into the UK.
“Managing process variations has always been a huge problem,” says Promapp CEO Ivan Seselj. “It is unnecessarily complex, costly, and inconsistent, particularly for companies which are multi-nationals, have numerous locations, or offer multiple core products or services.”
The Promapp PVM Module addresses these issues by recognising standard processes and either managing or eliminating process variations. Typical HR processes that are often subject to variation include activities such as ‘Advertise a new position’, ‘Apply for Leave’ or ‘Submit an Expense Request’.
Unlike competing products, the Promapp PVM Module enables the standardisation of processes across the entire company, while simply incorporating process variations to meet the requirements of a specific corporate location or department as necessary.
“Simplifying the management of process variations allows companies to save both time and money, while enabling them to control and improve customised services and activities,” Seselj explains.
BPM experts who previewed the Promapp PVM Module agree. IDC market analyst Joseph Hsiao notes,
“Managing process variations is a big issue for multi-national enterprises who need to enable a certain level of localisation. Most companies are challenged with business process mapping – standardising business processes and creating a single source of truth. That is what Promapp does really well.”
Steve Stanton of FCB Partners concurs, adding,
“Ninety percent of the organizations I know have failed at standardisation. The fact that Promapp can identify and calculate the cost of process variants is very powerful.”
